  1. Pet hates.

    Too many auto things on my 7 month old car. Still routing the blighters out and turning them off. Rick.
  2. What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    U2s at 45000 feet going North about 50mins ago. Nothing else looks, or sounds, like that at that altitude! Seen on ADSB-Exchange. Rick.
  3. Piper Cub. KP 1/72nd L4.

    Zero work done in the last few months. Modelling taken a back seat to make way for life! Hope to bung it together soon. Rick.
  4. Could be a C208 maybe? Fits the description. They do tend to get weird paint jobs too. Not all aircraft will be picked up by FR24. Rick.
  5. What music are you playing? Pt III

    Deep Purple on the Red Button! Yeah! Rick.
  6. Is Trump a happy horse?

    It's in the eyes. Rick. Polishing me medals.
  7. Is Trump a happy horse?

    Found these two pictures in the Manx independent last time I was over there: Rick.
  8. Anybody heard of MRHQ?

    Thanks chaps, I'll have a closer look. BTW Dan; "A VETERAN - Whether active duty or retired is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "Great Britain", for an amount of "up to and including my life". That is HONOUR, and there are way too many people who forget this." Nice way to look at it. Rick.
  9. Anybody heard of MRHQ?

    Chaps. One for EX-Serving people. I've just had an email, possible unsolicited, from MRHQ. A supposed recruiting company for ex-military personnel. It looks like typical SPAM, but some of it does ring true. My CV is certainly out there for these guys to find etc. In the usual places too. So it is technically SPAM, but they would spam me because of my cv anyway. You know, drumming up business. From my quick internet trawling I don't find much on the negative side of things to make me suspicious, but dodgy people are good at not looking dodgy! They also don't appear on Companies House. The question is, has anyone on here had any dealings with company? I'm certainly on the market, so they could be useful to me, but I'm swerving away from them cause "To good to be true=ain't true"! Rick. EDIT. Found them on Companies House!
  10. Revell 1/32 Spitfire. Is it a MKIIa or closer to a MKVa?

    I better have a check of the canopy then. Looking at Hannants, the prop/spinner is pretty darn expensive! I'll go with the kit option for the time being and change it when funds allow, should be easy enough to pop the old one off after the build. Thanks for all your help guys. Rick.
  11. Revell 1:400 Titanic

  12. Revell 1/32 Spitfire. Is it a MKIIa or closer to a MKVa?

    Cheers Chap. So... What you're saying is, just buy decals (or more likely masks) and wheels to make it pretty close to a MKVa? Oh, the spinner/prop will need changing too. That lot sounds cheaper than trying to make it a MKIIa. Rick.
  13. Chaps. Ref the 03986 kit from a couple of years ago. I remember seeing a few posts discussing this subject, but my question is, would it be cheaper to make this as a MKIIa or a MKVa? I appreciate it'll need resin correction parts (and decals if I go down the Va route) to make a better version of either, but which should I go for? Telford coming up and I need to order the bits..... Rick.
  14. PK-82 T-34, Finished!

    That looks a heck of a lot better than the Airfix offering! very nice looking build. Rick.
  15. Ordering from Jadlam

    Very odd. Used them may times without issue. Maybe you just weren't meant to have that Spit. I know, I should never have bought mine. It scares the living poo out of me every time I open the box! Rick.
